This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!

We all have the never-ending to do list. We start off hopeful, but as the day unfolds it grows longer. We fall behind. And in an effort to catch up, we become a whirlwind of frantic activity. We put our faith in multitasking as the way to salvage the day’s plan. We think only of what’s next on the list, what’s still on the list, and what on the list can be pushed to tomorrow’s list. THE LIST rules your life.

One Photographer’s Journey with Simone Severo

One Photographer’s Journey with Simone Severo

On December 31, 2014, I shared my thoughts on going on a journey to challenge myself as a photographer. All of a sudden I had this strong feeling that I needed to do something different to reach out to higher levels of what I could become. On January 1, 2015, my journey started.  

My first portrait was a self portrait. I remember thinking ironically “great, it is the first of the year and I already had a cancelation…that started well”.  Things got better after that. I set myself on a strict plan of calling everybody I knew, posting on my website, talking to the neighbors and asking friends of friends about being photographed for what I called A Portrait a Day project. Some people found me online and volunteered.

What The Pros Are Saying: Design Aglow Frames

I started selling the Design Aglow Frames this year, and have been so happy with them.

One of the beautiful things about shooting film is that it’s simple. When you shoot digital, you take the photos first, then you decide how to edit them, and then you still have to actually do the editing work. But when you shoot film, the finished look of your photos depends on the film stock you choose and how you meter. So you take the photos first and then send the film to the lab for processing. When your prints are in your hand, they are finished and require no further editing. Because film stock has such a big influence on the look of your finished prints, choosing your film stock is one of the most important steps in this process! There are so many choices of film stock that I couldn’t even list them all here. I’m going to share some of my favorite film stocks later, but it’s important for you to find your own voice and look. My advice then is to experiment with several different film stocks.
